Love or hate your countries national anthem?

We, Gaz and I, both think the UK could have a miles better national anthem than the one we've got. What do you think and if you could replace it what would you replace it with?



Thanks to .tUrniP for the sig

It can only be GSTQ as the national anthem for the UK, I only wish the country wasn't that PC that we only ever sing the first verse. Hardly anyone knows that the other 5 exist.

Even just the first and second would do, it does seem kind of short without. Especially when you have obscure little countrys singing their anthem for half an hour before kick off to some footy matches ...

O Lord our God arise
Scatter her enemies

And make them fall
Confound their politics
Frustrate their knavish tricks
On Thee our hopes we fix
God save us all


Nothing wrong with that is there?


I would love to see ENGLAND have its own recognised anthem, granted she is the Queen of England so if anyone it should be the English who still sing it even when representing their individual nation but, ah, lets have Jerusalem!

The Scots have Flower of Scotland, the welsh have whatever it is they sing at Rugby ... why not us?

Rugby Union have Jerusalem tapped up mate.....

Football wise we should definitely have something different..

I just think ours is a dirge.....

Something more uplifting....

Put some lyrics to Nimrod....



Imagine that playing when we win the World Cup or pick up a Gold at the Olympics..



I'd fuckin crumble......



Ta TW for the sig.

I don't love or hate God save the Queen, they are both too strong; I really just feel indifferent. Actually, I feel the same about the union jack too... so I guess it's a symptom of not being a nationalist.

I think I would prefer it if the lyrics were different though...

Can't say i am a fan of the national anthem GSTQ. I don't see how it can be called a "National" anthem when the song is about saving just one old crone. We should have something like the yanks have, at least they are singing about how great their country is and how brave the people are. That is what a national anthem should be about IMO

I think our anthem should omit the Queen part and put in Gris Gris. Sounds way better then. lol

I wanted to sing the theme to Stingray instead of signing god save the queen. My then teacher said no. So I Then I asked could I sing Skippy the Bush Kangaroo instead and he said no again. So I and got out of singing it. Brilliant ploy on my part.

I feel the same as many. I feel Jerusalem ( I vow to thee my country ) or Land of Hope and Glory are more appropriate. Every time I here Land of My Fathers , it brings out goose pimples. Not so God save the queen.

I agree Star, you see the pride in Americans faces when they sing their anthem......us Brits just don't really take "god save the queen" to their hearts in the same way! sad

Because we aren't singing about a nation G, just about some wrinkly old fucker with cob webs down her knickers.

I would say Land of hope anf glory is what we should have
